LITTLE BOOK OF BOB: Life Lessons From A Street-Wise CatJAMES BOWEN Book Number: 88298 Product format: Paperback
2020 paperback reissue of the big bestseller from inspirational Bob. James Bowen became a bestselling writer with 'A Street Cat Named Bob' and here, tender and wise, is a little book with a big heart. James's decision to adopt a ginger street cat was the wisest move he ever made. Bob had been injured when he was found in the spring of 2007, and Jim nursed him back to health and he certainly rescued his new owner, a homeless addict who had been sleeping rough or in shelters. Together they have enjoyed their ninth life, and very sadly Bob has just passed away in June 2020. Here is a cat who was as comfortable at meeting people at book signings or film premières as he was sitting on the pavement while Jim strummed his guitar in Covent Garden or sold The Big Issue outside the tube station at the Angel. 'For the past ten years or more, he has genuinely been a kind of guru to me.' The book is a delightful collection of experiences and insights as the pair trot through Central London, clambering into cardboard boxes and Bob, 'looking slightly miffed that his fun has been cut short.' Know yourself through your cat. Lovely line art, 166pp in paperback.
